“Nice and easy place to spend a night”
Reviewed May 11, 2011

The Hostel was very easy to find with the address and a simple map. The service was very nice and friendly, the staff was great! The squirrel was very clean, the toilets and everything else too. The location of the squirrel is very good if you want to just wander around the city center and old town. The bus stop to the airport is also very near, and the buses in Riga are easy to use. Most of the major attractions of Riga are inside a walking distance from the hotel.

However there was two things I didn't like. The soundproofing in the room was poor, you could easily hear when someone was in the hallway. And when trying to sleep, the air conditioner kept an irritating noise throughout night.

However, squirrel brought great value for the small price!

Rooms were clean and spacious. Staff was super friendly. The walking tour of Riga is great! Don't take the cab from the bus station; it's literally a 5 minute walk but the cab driver didn't know where to go and took us all around...

I had a nice time in Riga, and the naughty squirrel made it even better!

It was my best hostel for so far! Hard to beat the naughty squirrel!
